What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Cloverfield Scares

Tomorrow's the day, everyone!

Yep, the day when bakers try - and mostly fail - to remember what a shamrock looks like.

Here, guys, I'll give you a hint:





They're also not lumpy Xs:


Broccoli stalks:


Wonky crosses:


Or cacti!

Got all that?


Ok... GO.

See, now you're just screwing with me.


Tell you what, bakers, just go back to making leprechauns.


I mean pots of gold.


I mean rainbows.

Hats Off - Really, REALLY Off - For Dr. Seuss!

It's Dr. Seuss' birthday!

And what better way to celebrate than with the Cat in the Hat's iconic hat?

K, bakers, that's your cue to wow us with some show-stoppers!


Well, it'll stop something, alright.

Because it looks like a traffic cone.


I thought this was pretty bad at first, but then I realized those are supposed to be Things #1 and 2 at the bottom:

So now I'm just scared.


Maybe the third time's the charm?


(Psst. Hey, baker. You spelled "splendiferous" wrong on your penis cake.)


Ok, forget the hats. After all, you've seen the best...

(By Absolutely Cake by Sebrina)


now see... this thing!

And from the looks of things, the Things are smeared all over this thing. Ew.
